    Yep. Motor and rebuilt trans to Bob. LS bolted in and back to Arkansas for the full swap at an LS shop here in NWA. Rest-mod it is. I hope that doesn't hurt the resale value, Mike. ;-)

    Good conversation with the local shop, plus ample research online makes it feasible, even with A/C.

    Well... Jeep is at it's next transition point.

    Bob and I went to pick it up with his new trailer

    Got it unloaded in my dads backyard, pending a heart removal.

    The brackets for the new heart showed up yesterday as well.

    I was going to say "I don't know what's sexier... that LS or Bob?!?!", but that's not the truth. BOB is the ultimate sexy and I WILL find a way to posterize that for my bar!

    That you, Daniel and Bob! After all the headaches and heartaches with this thing, I'm so excited to have an actual direction and plan. Can't wait to actually be driving this again one day.

    For the rest of you mugs - due to the fire and the incomplete wiring that will never be fully back to factory, I've obviously gone the "resto-mod" route and will be doing an LS swap to a make this an ultimate off-road road trip machine! I can't wait.

    Bob has my old motor and trans, so that lives on at least! If we can't have matched tires and rims, we might as well not have matched engines as well.

    Happy to do it and thank you! Felt good to be working on a Jeep that wasn't an "OMG I leave for the trail in 6 hours!!!!" project.
    Touch the cow. Do it NOW!
